English, to engage in meaningful, intercultural
communication, understand and interpret the spoken
and written language, and present information,
concepts and ideas in local and global communities. As
a result of their language study, students gain an
understanding of the perspectives of other cultures and
compare the language and cultures learned with their
own. The standards and benchmarks for these courses
are aligned with the expected levels of language
proficiency rather than grade levels.
Students who earn high school credit for middle school
study are expected to take at least one to two
additional years of the same language in high school or
begin a two-year sequence (minimum) of a different
language. Completion of the longest sequence possible
in the same language is recommended.
